             Professional Bio
             Robert A. MacNeill
             Mr. MacNeill has over 10 years engineering experience with a well-rounded
             background in analysis, design, and testing. Specific fields of specialization
             include nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA) in the realm of vehicle
             crashworthiness, analysis of structures, high-speed penetration analysis, and
             blast analysis; fluid mechanics and thermal analysis; solid rocket propulsion; and
             infrared countermeasures (IRCM). Mr. MacNeill is an adept user of LS-DYNA,
             having implemented many advanced features of the code, including ALE & SPH
             capabilities. Mr. MacNeill is skilled at constructing complex parametric finite
             element models. Vehicle FEA model examples include the M-113A3 armored
             personnel carrier and an advanced concept military vehicle for the US Army,
             which were used for blast analysis investigations to compare with experimental
             results. As part of the NIST World Trade Center disaster investigation, Mr.
             MacNeill coordinated the development of a large scale parametric FEA model of
             both towers for aircraft impact analysis as well as a model for WTC 7, a 47 story
             building that also fell as a result of the tower collapse. The models automatically
             pulled information from several databases to form the building assemblies. Mr.
             MacNeill also has experience in program management and technical leadership
             for many programs.
